Thanks to fellow Woody Boater Bob Kays for making us aware of the Tuesday, May 13 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) season finale ” Honor thy Father” episode of NCIS on CBS and of course for those of you that watch on web, its available online to view. The lead character, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) has built a sailboat as a way to reduce the stress of his job over the last couple years…..
Well, this latest episode introduces a new boat that he will be building. Or at least that’s the set up. Maybe in the following episodes he is half way through the project and gives up, tries to sell it on Ebay for 100K…It is a crime show after all. All kidding aside, the writers and director certainly captured the essence of a boys dream boat.
There is a lovely line in the show. The Mom says. ” Grandpa says, water never forgets. Anyone with a boat named after them will live forever” Very powerful line, and true..
Yes it looks like a new model, HERE IS ONE ON EBAY…and yes the lettering is a tad over kill for a father son build. Dad, “No Gibbs, the font needs to be a Royal Script“, “DAD! Really I was thinking of just painting it….
But its TV.. And if he is going to build a barrel back in the basement to relieve stress. HA, does he have a rude awakening coming. It would take the show in another area.. Cop looses it after realizing that Philips head screws are for post war boats! Either way the show goes though, it will be cool to watch how they weave Dads boat into the story. If you want to watch the entire episode online Just click here, and tune in on Tuesday nights on CBS to follow the adventures.. It is really a cool show.
